The core values of the Stephen Sutton Multi-Academy Trust are:
A PASSION TO LEARN AND TO SUCCEED
Stephen was ambitious, determined and focused, and members of this Trust aim to follow Stephen’s example in taking our opportunities and always looking to improve.
HONESTY AND INTEGRITY
One of Stephen’s defining characteristics was his openness and very straightforward style of communication. Trust is developed through the way we treat each other and strong relationships based on trust help us all to get better outcomes.
POSITIVITY AND BRAVERY
In Jane Sutton’s words, Stephen was ‘as bright as a diamond and just as tough’. Stephen taught us to develop a positive outlook and work through the difficulties we face with determination and resilience.
CREATIVITY AND A SENSE OF FUN
We recognise that there are lots of different ways to get great outcomes and so we encourage innovation and calculated risk-taking. Stephen reminded us that, ‘life is for living’ and it’s important to have fun!
